Spring is coming and that can mean only one thing: Spring cleaning! The place to start is with your kitchen. The kitchen is the hub of any home but it can also be the messiest. It is where we cook, bake, and eat. This is where we congregate as families and where we talk with friends over coffee. It seems like the perfect place to start, especially the cabinets.
Kitchen cabinets tend to get a little greasy from all of the cooking and activity. To give your cabinets that old shine try using oil. Mineral oil or even just vegetable oil takes the grease off of your cabinet surfaces but will also give them a beautiful sheen. But it’s not just the outside that matters.
Organization is the perfect way to keep away the clutter and mess. Among our products you will find any organization tool you might need. Whether your pots and pans are a clanking mess or your plastic ware are a cluttered avalanche every time you open the cabinet door, we can help. You can make next year’s spring cleaning easier by staying organized all year long. After a long, hard winter treat your home to a refresh with these helpful organization products and many more found at Custom Service Hardware.
Use our corner lazy Susan to keep things like plastic ware containers in their place. Put lids on one shelf and stack the bins on another.
With the holiday cooking season upon us, it’s time to make the most of the space we have available. This week we focus on kitchen cabinets and shelving, next week closet storage space.
Being organized has its advantages, all throughout your home.
“Finally, all done with cooking – now where is that glass container? What about the cinnamon — there it is, oh wait, it’s cumin!” Sound familiar? Then it’s time to get organized.
Remodeling or upgrading kitchen cabinets is a great step towards perfecting your home’s kitchen, but having a functional workspace to craft your culinary concoctions is indispensable. This week we want to feature some great ways to streamline your kitchen cabinets and shelving – the more focus is on the joy of cooking, and the less on where the utensils are, the better. Especially if you’ve got a house full of family – or will be cooking for one!
Cabinet Door Storage Trays / Bins
With a little bit of effort, cabinet space can be maximized – using both the interior as well as the door. These white storage trays are an example of either direct mounting or using convenient accessory brackets.
Ready to assemble kitchen cabinets are great for the conveniences they offer. The lead time between ordering your desired cabinet and receiving them is often non-existent because the parts are ready to be shipped. The selection of finishes and styles are large enough that you can find exactly what you need. Once you receive your RTA kitchen cabinets you'll be able to easily and quickly assemble these cabinets.
However, if you want the ease of assembly, but desire some special customization, you're in luck! Most ready to assemble cabinet lines offer the option to add specialty pieces. You'll get quality materials and a high end look without breaking the bank. Whether you want extra functionality in your kitchen cabinets or just want it to fit with the theme of your kitchen stylistically, there are a variety of options to choose from.
Customize for Utility
Add custom-like features for your RTA kitchen cabinet to help make life easier for you as you work. Specialty wine racks offer storage not just for wine bottles but other bottles and glasses you may want to keep out of cupboards. A wine lattice is both attractive and functional, and if you choose a deluxe wine rack option that comes with unique molding. Consider adding appliance lifts to your cabinets for easy use of your heavier appliances. You won't have to struggle with lifting heavy mixers or your microwave with an appliance lift.
Customize in Style
Even if you don't need special function, you want your kitchen cabinets to feel unique to your home. There are other ways to customize your RTA cabinets to enhance or incorporate them into your kitchen's theme. Decorative moldings for your cabinets are a great way to personalize your kitchen. From crown molding to rope molding and beyond, the options are endless. Another specialty option for many RTA cabinets is decorative hoods for your range. Many lines of cabinets offer a wide range of gorgeous wood hoods that come in different styles and trims. You'll find a truly great style in this selection of custom decorative hoods from arched to rectangle to Victorian styles.
One of the easiest ways to improve the functionality and style of your kitchen is to add more storage options. Whether you need to optimize a small kitchen or you want to add more character to your kitchen with some unique pieces, there are many great creative ways to complete this project.
On Door Storage
Adding storage to your kitchen cabinet doors doesn't have to look sloppy or added-on. There are many door mount styles of storage that offer you a chance to organize your kitchen in a fun way. Organizing your spices or using a door mounted rack for your pantry are great simple ways to add some character to your kitchen. One of your higher cabinet doors can have a spice rack mounted in the door. No more rummaging for spices or the ones that get pushed to the back. Conversely, use your newly mounted spice rack to hold your wine and shot glasses! Orderly and organized, they'll stay safe from falling or getting pushed around on the shelves.
Instead of losing precious shelf space to piled up cutting boards, you can install a door mounted cutting board holder. These holders come in natural wood models to match with your cabinets. You won't have to deal with clattering cooking sheets and pans when looking for a cutting board with them stored nicely on your kitchen cabinet door.
Drawer organization doesn't have to be boring or plain. There are various styles you can use in your drawers, depending on your needs. Instead of a traditional white drawer insert for your cutlery, consider a natural wood insert. Choose an insert that matches the wood or coloring of your kitchen or adds a nice aesthetic flow. However, if you'd like easy access to your spice rack, why not create a spice drawer! Spice drawer inserts come in several different styles with elevated panels to display your spices. Of course, if you want to take your drawer's interior design into your own hands, get a drawer peg board. That way you can choose where the lines and barriers need to be for whatever you want to store in your drawers.
The sky's the limit when you want to add creative storage to your kitchen. Wouldn't ironing be less of a pain if your iron was neatly wall mounted next to your ironing board? You can install an iron holder inexpensively to add a little extra convenience to your daily chores. If you want to display your wine in style — and have a spot to hang your wine glasses — you can install an attractive deluxe wine rack along with your kitchen cabinets. For smaller spaces or less lofty wine storage needs, you can find lattice wine racks and other styles, as well as simple bottle racks for wine or other beverages.
